Well, it's not healthy to sniff the spores. Some people have quite the
allergic reaction. :-) The fungus degrades image quality and also damages
the glass surfaces of the lens. the archives contain several discussions
on what to do to remove the fungus.
What ill effects can be caused by fungus? Can it be removed from the
lens? Is is economically prudent given the cheap cost of a 50 mm 1.8
lens to have it removed?
